While projects vary year-to-year, several past projects have included:

  • Strategic planning for Accountable Care Organizations and Patient-Centered Medical Homes

  • Contract negotiations
  • Joint Commission accreditation
  • Facility planning
  • Business Plan development
  • Enhancing patient experience

Standing Meetings

The fellow will have the opportunity to attend standing meetings with the executive team, clinical leadership and with other stakeholders around the organization to gain a deeper understanding of UTMB Health.
